Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mark Bruce Salas (born March 8, 1961 in Montebello, California) is a former professional catcher who played in Major League Baseball from 1984-1991. Salas, who is of Mexican descent, currently works for the Chicago White Sox as a bullpen catcher. Despite playing for the Minnesota Twins before being traded to the New York Yankees during the 1987 season, Salas never received a World Series ring. Instead, he was given a watch. Salas is one of a few major leaguers whose surname is a palindrome; the others being catcher Truck Hannah (1918-1920), third baseman Eddie Kazak (1948-1952), infielder Toby Harrah (1969-1986), pitcher Dave Otto (1987-1994), first baseman Dick Nen (1963-1970), his son, reliever Robb Nen (1993-2002), pitcher Juan Salas (2006-present), and pitcher Marino Salas (2008-present).show more
